Stagecoach Solihull

Principal Jennifer has 22 years experience as Principal of Stagecoach Solihull, providing drama classes, dance classes and singing classes.

Solihull Stagecoach opened in 1997 and many of our students have gone on to achieve great opportunities in TV, film and professional touring productions such as Les Mis, Matilda, Scrooge, Evita, Mary Poppins, Beauty and The Beast, Never Forget, Doctor Dolittle, The Lion King, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Whistle Down The Wind, Joseph, Jesus Christ Superstar and Aida, and many more shows at the  Birmingham Hippodrome, Alexandra Theatres and the RSC.

Many students have gone on to study at Mountview, Arts Ed, LIPA, GSA, Birmingham School of Acting, LSMT and many have taken University places studying Drama, Dance, Singing and are now qualified teachers .

Ex students are performing in many West End Shows such as Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia, Sister Act,High School Musical, Mathew Bourne's Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty, Matilda and The Book of Mormon.

We pride ourselves on offering a safe environment where children can receive quality training in the performing arts. We welcome children with no previous experience and all we ask is that they are enthusiastic and keen to learn.

Students participate in all three performing arts disciplines: drama classes, dance classes and singing classes - helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and fun.

Providing performance opportunities twice a year within the school, we also cater for those who just love to perform via our own Performance Dance Troupe and Choir.

Weekly Classes

Mini Stages (for ages 2-4 yrs)

Mini Stages
Stagecoach Mini Stages (for 2 -4 year olds) 45 Minute Classes are a fun and exciting way for you and your child to actively experience the performing arts in a comfortable, relaxed and safe environment.

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Early Stages classes run alongside the main Stagecoach schools, where young people learn skills in each of the three Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama, so it is an easy step when it is time to transfer to the next stage.

(90 minutes each week)

Main Stages (for ages 6-18 yrs)

Main Stages classes are split in three age appropriate groups, where young people learn new skills in each of the complementary Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama. We nurture the shy and apprehensive, until they find their feet and voice, whilst at the same time developing and channelling those with bundles of talent, confidence and energy. We believe in the potential of every child!

(3 hrs each week)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.

Holiday Workshops

Themed Children's Parties

Birthdays & Celebrations

Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!
